Born in 1965 in Henan Province, China, Zhang Huan is best known for his controversial early works of performance art, most of which focus on physical endurance. In 1998 he moved to New York and established himself as one of the most important and widely recognized among expatriate Chinese artists. More recently, Zhang returned to China and established a studio in Shanghai, where he has begun to create large-scale sculpture. The exhibition includes more than fifty works of photography, sculpture, and painting. The exhibition is curated by Melissa Chiu, Director of the Museum, Asia Society.
